2017 1/2 oz Silver Lunar Year of The Rooster BU Australian Perth Mint In Capsule



This outstanding 2017 1/2 oz Silver Lunar Year of The Rooster BU Coin is a remarkable piece from the Lunar II collection of the prominent Perth Mint - a renowned coin series highly popular among passionate collectors and investors. The reverse side of the coin displays the beautiful ‘Year of the Rooster” image, which makes this coin a splendid birthday gift and an excellent addition to your coin portfolio.

The “Year of the Mouse” coin is the first Lunar II silver coin introduced by the Perth Mint in 2008. The second Lunar series was released as a result of the tremendous interest to the Lunar I series, offered by the Perth Mint starting with 1999. The I & II lunar series overlapped during three years, between 2008 and 2010. The Lunar II series became a highly desired collection, especially due to the high-quality of the coins. The beloved Lunar II series continues today with the stunning 2017 1/2 oz Silver Lunar Year of The Rooster BU Coin which depicts a beautiful image of a rooster, a hen and their three chicks standing amidst a flowers field and bamboo foliage. The ones who are born under the ‘rooster’ sign (1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005 and newborns in 2017) are referred as being loyal, honest, hardworking, and sociable. This fantastic coin is produced from 99.99% pure silver, a trademark of excellence of Perth Mint, making this 2017 ½ oz. “Year of the Rooster” silver coin an incredible gift option and a must-have addition to your lunar collection.
